    I just noticed I posted in the wrong thread and now it's too late to edit. I really need to get my eyes checked.

    It's alright. It was a nice change of pace. Usually, we know what your posts are going to say before we read them.

    Yes, I'm pretty consistent though not in any foolish sense, hobgoblins and all that.

    Popped the cork on a Baby Saz tonight.

    it's not the brash beast like a Willet, but I love the balance of it.

    Making it back around to Ritt BIB tonight. Great drink all around and that bottle is getting low.

    I opened my first High West bottle last night, the Double Rye. I didn't enjoy it very much. By far the most "minty" tasting whiskey I've ever had. I'm oddly looking forward to going back to it as it opens up. While I wasn't immediately taken with it, it was interesting. I think I'll have a dram and compare it with a Willet 4yr 110 tonight.

    I've tried everything that HW has put out except the Valley Tan. Without fail, when I open a new bottle I get strange (almost unpleasant) grassy/dill notes. I encourage you to not write it off yet. That said, if you are dipping your toes into their products, I highly recommend the Rendezvous Rye! Since you're a scotch drinker, try the Campfire as well.

    If I'm not mistaken I've seen some Willett 6 yr. Rye around here for ~$35. How does it compare to Rittenhouse BIB?

    That's it! Dill. It was minty as well, but not straight mint. A little strange, but I'll be revisiting for a while to see how it develops. I've definitely got some other HW bottles on my radar.

    Months ago I had a 5 year Willet from Astor that I thought was really fantastic. Definitely preferred to Rittenhouse, which I also enjoy very much. I have another bottle from them, this time 4 yr, that I'm opening up tonight.
